about foreign policy issues but the timing is critical now after the strong debate performance and the final month the campaign says they believe what the independent eyeballs focusing on this. as you noted, trying to demonstrate that peace through strength and effectively accuse the president of being a weak leader who has been bad for the military of this country. among some of the comments are the following. i know the president hopes for a safer, freer and more prosperous middle east allied with the united states. i share that hope but hope is not a strategy. there will also be familiar themes that we expect to hear here. the significance of avoiding defense cuts, specifically referring to sequestration and could affect tens of thousands of people here in virginia specifically. the need to reinvest in the military and the significance of working closely with america's allies. a lot of these contrasts rhetorical more than actual contrasts and witness. he's been vague as some noticed about policy differences with the president but one place where he'll show a difference is on
's foreign policy speech containing attacks on the president's record. during the daily fix, chris. this was mitt romney going after president obama saying he's leading from behind. i just got off a conference call the obama team put on with madeleine albright. he barely mentioned china and his mention of russia they say russia is not the greatest foreign policy challenge. when it comes to the middle east he senses vulnerability in the wake of benghazi. >> i think it's an attempt for romney to push the reset button. they put out a statement, a political statement before we knew about the death of ambassador chris stef ens that they could have handled it better but it doesn't mean they should leave the issue alone. they think the president is vulnerable. i thought the most quotable line from the romney speech is hope is not a strategy talking about the middle east. you used the words leading from behind. mitt romney used it at least once in the speech. the speech was an attempt to say, this is what barack obama has done. here is what i would do. it was tonal more than specific. it w
to outline his foreign policy vision. if he gets into the white house, we know he'll offer a rhetorical contrast to president obama, but how much space is there on policy? and is this an official break from the bush doctrine? also, the biden ryan debate in kentucky. will the vice president avoid any quote bumps in the road as the president described his own performance over the weekend and how will paul ryan perform on the biggest stage of his career. plus, you say tomato. i say electoral. find out how some trade decisions could affect the election in some key states. good morning, it's monday, october 8th, 2012. i'm chuck todd. i know some of you are celebrating as if this is some federal holiday. there is no day off when it's 29 days until the november election. if mitt romney is going to be president of the united states, then next week, iowa and ohio will be coin flip races. we're seeing a more confidence mitt romney on the trail. >> we had a little debate earlier this week and i enjoyed myself. you had the chance to hear his answers or non answers. now, of course, days later, we're
is getting ready to unveil his vision for foreign policy in a speech in lexington, virginia. here's a portion of his speech. it goes like this, they sent us excerpts earlier. general marshall once said he is going to say, the only way human beings can win a war is to prevent it. those words were true in his time and they still echo in ours. want to get to tara walsh, the senior communications adviser for the romney campaign. nice to see you. thanks for talking with us. >> hi, soledad. good morning. absolutely. >> so we know having read some of these excerpts that have been sent out by the campaign that governor romney's going to focus on israel, he's going to focus on the palestinian territories and no big surprise, he's going to focus on iran. why don't you spell out for me exactly what governor romney's position is when it comes to iran? >> well, listen, governor romney is going to clearly spell out the choice that there is this election, particularly when it comes to foreign policy and all of the unrest that is happening in the middle east right now and how we have to address that and that
. mitt romney out of nowhere it seems, major address today on american foreign policy. take a listen. >> the president is fond of saying that the tide of war is receding. i want to believe him as much as anyone else. when we look at the middle east today, with iran closer than ever to nuclear weapons capability, with the conflict in syria threatening to destabilize the region and with violent extremists on the march, and with an american ambassador and three others dead, likely at the hands of al qaeda affiliates, it is clear that the risk of conflict in the region is higher now than when the president took office. >> so we'll hit the speech in depth here a lot on the middle east. but first, let me give you the big picture. as we mentioned, four weeks until the election, and we are seeing a possible shift in favor of mitt romney. check this out. this is what has happened since that debate last wednesday. this is gallup's daily tracking poll. a dead heat here when you look at the different numbers, a dead heat for the race for president, down from the five-point advantage for the pres
. later today, mitt romney will make what is being billed as a major foreign-policy speech at the virginia military institute in lexington, virginia. campaign advisers are positing a speech stark contrasts the president's view. what do you want the governor to talk about in his speech today? what kind of issues do you think need more attention from the candidates on the campaign trail? if you are a republican, give us a call. for republicans, 202-585-3881. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for democrats, 202-585-3880. for independents, 202-585-3882. you can also catch up with us on a all your social media platforms. twitter, facebook, and e-mail span.org.al@c- good morning to you on this october 8. we want to start with that foreign policy speech that mitt romney is getting ready to make today. here are the headlines from "the washington times." read to you a little bit from the story, "mitt romney on monday will accuse the obama administration of fundamentally misunderstanding the threat of radical islam." host: that address is coming up at 11:20 today. we want to know what you think these can
foreign policy speech from mitt romney scheduled to begin 20 minutes from now. we'll have it in its entirety live on "happening now." the republican candidate will be in lexington, virginia, west central virginia. at the virginia military institute. we understand he will argue it is time for a policy change in the middle east. he will touch on libya, other places in that part of the world, iran, afghanistan, all of it coming up from lexington, virginia, 20 minutes from now. we'll have it for you here on "happening now.". more on that speech in just a moment but first, brand new stories and breaking news. jenna: a deadly meningitis outbreak spreading as the number of cases and the death toll keeps going up. plus a desperate search for a little girl missing since she left for school on friday. right now the only sign of the 10-year-old? a backpack found six miles away. a final lap crash at talladega setting off a 25-car pileup. the fallout and more on "happening now." jenna: hi, everybody, i'm jenna lee. hope you're off to a good monday thus far. with less than a month to go until ele
really see eye to eye on a lot of foreign policy issues. the only one that we really heard that was different was what you had actually talked about and that was romney's stance on arming the syrian rebels. how does the united states go about doing that, because we know the obama administration even learning in the "new york times", they're discouraging u.s. allies, arab allies to actually get involved. >> yeah. you know, if you would have lisped that speech, you would assume atmospherically that romney had very strong disagreements with the obama administration, but his problem is that obama has run a foreign policy almost like a moderate republican. it's been internationalist, and not too liberal in temz of the human rights oriented. the syrian issue is the one place romney can find to make a distinction. as you point out, it's a very difficult policy to enact. the syrian insurgency is really an uprising of 100 armed militias all over syria that are not particularly well connected to one another. >> you wouldn't understand the goals of the people you are arming, and there
and will tighten the sanctions we currently have. >> max hoffman was in lexington for that speech. foreign policy was never at the heart of romney's message. he has always been about the economy. what did we learn about him here? are we looking at a new conservative republican? -- neo-conservative republican? >> they avoided the name "george w. bush" similar to ronald reagan's foreign-policy. they do not want to be in his corner. at the same time, they want to take advantage of the traditional republican strength. they believe they are tougher when it comes to national security. he's trying to solve that dilemma by saying he wants to avoid war by spending more on the military. he does not want to scare off any independent voters but at the same time he wants to satisfy his conservative clients. >> let's look at the broader campaign. last week, he got a big boost from winning that the raid against obama. the polling numbers also looking better for him now. is the obama campaign worried? >> nervous, there is no question, but as there has been some significant change in some of the most important sw
order and the president's role in leading foreign policy. this is about an hour and a half. >> i am david rothkopf. we have a terrific panel here. >> we are g going -- we are going to open with a quote, and then i will ask them a couple questions about related issues. following that, at the end of each one of these sort of 20 or 25-minute sks, i'm going to look to you for questions, so we can keep this as interactive as possible and have you as engaged in the discussion as possible. at the end, there will even be a little more time so that if we haven't covered something in the context, then you will be able to introduce that into the discussion, and we will wrap up here promptly at 8:00 tonight. when we do get to the questions and answers, it would be good if you identify yourselves, and keep your statements in the form of a question rather than an oratio flfment. i have already spoken to them about the same goals, which is to have a lot of brief comments and engagement on each of the issues. we're going to start, as our first issue, on the theme of american decline. bob famously w
interested in foreign policy and even issues like the defense budget? and that's why issues like that and the onces we don't know about that make me wary of all these straight line projections we're make in the future based on what things look like right now. >> anyone want to address the point? >> which point? >> the point about . >> pick on any of the points. i meant the point about iran and the likely hood we would enter in to military action there regardless of who wins. [inaudible] >> question from the audience? >> yes, sir. front row. >> microphone approaching you from the left. governor romney said he wants to create 12 million jobs during his term, that's 250,000 jobs a month. in the past, the u.s. has always been an exporter. and that was what created jobs. how do you see his promise of creating 12 million jobs in four years? >> unlikely. [laughter] >> okay. that's one view. anybody want to elaborate on that? >> look, i think we are in a completely different, you know, job market. we're about -- a few weeks during the convention which is bill clinton lineback in 1990 if
. [♪...] connell: markets now continues and romney's foreign policy, does former ambassador john bolton think the republican candidate has the right plan for syria? we will talk to him in a few minutes. we also have jeff flock at a business. and red bull with some new offerings for consumers that are coming in today. we will get to that. connell: at the bottom of the hour, we have nicole back with stocks now every 15 minutes. big deal for united health today. nicole: that's right the recent dow component recently added to the dow jones industrial average. let's take a look at united healthcare how it is faring. up over half a percent right now. this on the same day that united health is going to buy most of a brazil company, health insurers and also hospital operators. 4.9 billion dollars deal. gives them 90% stake in this company. of course we've talked about such a challenging environment here in the u.s. and it cease the third deal that we've heard in the health insurers business. we also heard of aetna, buying controversy -- buy buy coventry health. there's really consolidation in this in
under control. your statement is not accurate. >> let me go back to the policy questions, foreign policy question about the situation recently with the north africa. american taxpayers billions of dollars -- it was a big issue when we saw the scenes will see in a moment in egypt and the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. a radical islamist group attacked the u.s. embassy and tore down the american flag. in the same day, in libya, an assault on the consulate resulted in the death of the american ambassador christopher stevens and three others. these images echo the worst -- the recall those moments in 1979 with the taking of american hostages at the embassy in iran. u.s. taxpayers as an enormous 1.6 billion doris to egypt, -- $1.6 billion to egypt, which is now run by a former member of the muslim brotherhood. should the u.s. give up foreign aid to these nations, mr. sadler? >> no. not now, we have a fledgling government being formed a. with egypt withholding funds, the editorial board agreed is time for us to stop the old on that aid. it is in our best interests to stay involved.
d date will focus on foreign policy. earlier this week the carnegie endowment for peace posted a discussion on the president's role in leading foreign policy. they talked about challenges facing the u.s. including american influence and engagement globally, the changing international order and emerging nations. two of the featured panelists included thomas friedman, "new york times" foreign affairs columnist and author of "the world is flat." and jessica mathews, carnegie president and director of national security office of global issues. >> good evening. my name is david rothkopf, and i will be the moderator for this evening. in the carnegie endowment discussion about how should the next american president engage the world. this is a debate format discussion. we have a terrific group of panelists here. starting on the far right we have professor john ikenberry of princeton. next is tom friedman of the new york times. next to him is our own jessica matthews of the carnegie endowment, and beside jessica is bob kagan at the brookings institution and we are going to cover several

of issues going on in foreign policy not the least of which is what happens september 11th, so depending on demographics if you watch the woman's talk show you had a certain glimpse of what happened and if you watch the sunday programs, you had a completely different glimpse, and of course if you listen to press conferences, you had a third iteration of what potentially happened. with the previous welcome can you tell me that foreign policy shoved its way to the shop of the list of the platform for the election and tell me the insights as to mitt romney in the pc road today in the journal. >> well, first of all, i think it is going to be a big issue in the campaign. i still think this week is going to be dominated by the economy, but you're seeing foreign policy and national security percolate up the ladder as far as what issues are going to matter in november, and here is why. obviously we can talk about the economy and what a mess it has been and that barack obama hasn't fulfilled his promises. we put that aside. then you look overseas and the atlantic toeocean and the promi obama made

. that needs to be made clear. we have an administration that has a foreign policy that is in confusion. it is not clear to our allies nor to our foes. with regards to iran, we saw student protestors. no word from this administration. no word at all. finally in 2011 the united states stepped forward with sanctions. i'm happy that the european nations have stepped forward with sanctions as well. but we need to be clear with our allies, with our ally israel. this isn't just their problem or that reggie. this is a problem for the world. it is estimated in three years the iranians are going to have icbm's that can reach the united states. this is our concern. and we have heard nothing from this administration with regard to iran enriching uranium. there is a lack of leadership, a lack of claret. -- clarity. i want america to remain a stabilizing force in the world. a lack of leadership, a lack of clarification, when our allies need to know what we are doing, we have lost that. moredon't know who is confused, governor romney or president obama. it is a confusing time in the middle east. the
results and you really talk about foreign policy as being two ideas for analogies at play. i would be interested -- i end of thinking you are a vietnam analogy guy. of munich -- that you wouldn't subscribe to that. am i reading you right? >> wet me say realism leads to the spatial representation of humanity's interests in the first place and that is how i discussed geography which dominates the rest of the book. you have to take them both together. you can that be a munich guy or vietnam guy. it is an analogy that tends to thrive when the country has been in peace and prosperity long enough. it feels it can intervene on behalf of subject and oppressed people around the world and doesn't think about the costs because it hasn't had to pay the cost for several decades. vietnam is about taking care of one's own and taking care of how things can go so horribly wrong. if you are a total vietnam person you will be such an utter realist that it will be too crew. you won't have anything beyond interest and a nation requires ideals for self identity to define itself. you will be intervening
